Austin Bright Light Design was started with one goal in mind:  to make wearable art that brings smiles to the wearer and those around them.  

In 2015, we created two jellyfish inspired LED costumes to wear at the Voodoo Arts and Music festival in New Orleans.   Founders Gerry Gilligan and Jason Balcauski were overwhelmed by the response of people they met both at the festival and exploring New Orleans.   Greeted by smiles and many "Where can I get one?"  questions, the idea was born to establish Austin Bright Light Design to make costumes that combined the latest in lighting technology with outrageous design and materials.

After a successful Kickstarter campaign in October 2017 proving that their dreams had merit, Gerry and Jason launched ABLD.  So if you are at a house party, dance club, live concert, or just a walk through the neighborhood -  Austin Bright Light Design can help bring more light to your night and show the glow in your soul!

Our products are available on-line, though retail partners and by appointment for rentals and custom engagements.
